Why is it a little hard to shift gears?

Lets say 2 things the clutch itself is worn or it's not releasing the clutch enough from the pressure plate.

I suggest a small test
1. Start engine while clutch pedal is releasing the clutch plate hold the brake pedal at the same time and then release the clutch pedal slowly .
How far is the pedal from the floor

You have to be carefull with the bleeding procedure.
You can bring air into the system and result is your problems

Hope it helps

Changed clutch, master cylinder, slave cylinde, folk but still cannot get any clutch

You may still have air in the system
Try filling the reservoir again and bleed out the air at the slave cylinder
Use a friend to pump up the clutch pedal then get him to hold the pedal down while you bleed the slave cylinder.

I have a 2000 mazda 323 with a manual transmission. i have already change the clutch kit but the gear is still hard to shift

Check the hydraulic clutch operation. This is a clutch master cylinder with a reservoir on the firewall, and a clutch slave cylinder down on the bell housing of the transmission, with a steel tube running from the master to the slave cylinder. When clutch pedal is depressed, hydraulic fluid (brake fluid) is forced from the master to the slave. The slave cylinder should push out a little plunger that contacts the clutch fork lever-pushing it forward to engage the clutch.
Add brake fluid to the reservoir if needed. Watch the plunger on the slave cylinder: if it moves little, or not enough, try bleeding the slave from the bleeder valve. They are bled just like brakes. If bleeding doesn't help, your clutch master or the slave may need replacing. The master cylinder, like a brake master, has internal seals that hold hydraulic pressure, so force can be applied to the plunger on the slave cylinder.

The clutch goes n but its very hard to shift the gears when u can get them in. someone told me they thought it was the slave cylinder im trying to find out what ur car does when that goes out.

If it is then it will be leaking brake fluid. Look under the car near the gearbox to find it. Check the fluid level in the container.

On 1991 stealth r/t 5 speed manual , yesterday shifted fine, have had issue with 2nd gear, ( a little hard to hit sometimes ) , But other than that shifted smoothly. Today all gears very hard to shift to,...

ok starting where you did... on the side of the transmission itself there will be a 1/2 inch socketed plug that can be undone to add gear oil there will be another on the bottom that can be used to drain the oil. for clutch master, standard brake fluid can be used and is recommended. the causes is most likely low fluid or worn out syncros in the tranny.. check the level of fluid in the clutch system and fill and bleed system at the slave cylinder. after that check fluid in the tranny. if all there is fine then i would recommend bringing it to a trans shop for diagnosis. if the syncros are going out then you will be looking to spend between 750 and 1500 to have it rebuilt or 2000+ for a new trans

Clutch not returning to start position, shifting

check cable tension the cable stretches over time cheap and not too hard to replace unless you drive very hard it is unlikely to be the clutch itself

2006 ford ranger can not bead the slave cylinder

I dont want to make you feel silly but it seems like you loosened a grease nipple and not a bleed screw. A small amount of fluid (if the slave cylinder is not new) is normal. Their is no way grease can get into the fluid system. Take off the feed pipe to the slave cylinder Try pumping the pedal or use your vacuum pump from there.Get someone to pump the pedal holding your finger on the end of the pipe to see if their is any preasure comming that far if not its your master cylinder if you have preasure check the slave cylinder again for a bleed screw. It seems more like the master cylinder unless it ran out of fluid otherwise how did air get in. You should also check if the slave cylinder or the bar comming from it is adjustable Sometimes their is a screw on the bar others have oblong holes to move the slave cylinder back or forward
